Despite posting a widening loss in the first quarter, wind turbine OEM Nordex expects improving results for the rest of 2021 amid global progress with vaccinations against Covid, but chief executive José Luis Blanco also cautioned about commodity price pressures.

"The Nordex Group has started 2021 well prepared. We are encountering continued good demand for our efficient Delta4000 platform, which we are successfully marketing as a global product,” Blanco said on the publication of first quarter financial results.
